Pros

If you are into guns, fishing, hunting your employee discount may help.

Cons

There are necessary upgrades to their computer system (crashes, runs slow) which when busy and dealing with impatient customers is not fun. They spend money elsewhere on unnecessary items.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set your priorities better. Spend time in an actual store, not a quick walk through. Speak to employees not the managers which mostly are clueless and protecting their own jobs.

    Pros

    Everyone has a common interset.

    Cons

    It is a retail job that is lower pay. You have to deal with customers that sometimes believe that they are always correct. Staffing can sometimes be an issue.
